Calling all 90’s babies. Are you afraid of the dark? If you know what that means then you must be excited! The spookiest 90’s tv show, Are you Afraid of the Dark, has come back from the dead and will air a three-hour long episode on October 11th, 2019.
Are You Afraid of the Dark, ran for seven years and stopped in year 2000. It was the first scary kids show airing before, Goosebumps, Disney channel’s So Weird and others.
If you are unfamiliar with the show, each episode consisted of a group of teenagers, who called themselves the ‘Midnight Society,’ meeting after dark around a campfire in the forest. Each one would take turns telling a scary story, which would be initiated by throwing ‘midnight dust’ on the fire. The stories would consist of creepy clowns, ghosts and eerie settings that were sure to have a chill run up your spine.
The greatest thing about this is the show has never been rebooted before. With the setting in Vancouver, it’ll be interesting to watch which areas in the lower mainland are turned into creepy ghost settings.
The show will be the same as before with the same concept, but will have a bit of a twist. In the past, the ‘Midnight Society’ would introduce their story and we wouldn’t get to see them again until the end of the show as different characters acted out the creepy stories. This time, the cast will begin the same way, but will get sucked into the story having to live it out themselves!
The reboot will consist of three- hour long episodes to be aired on October 11th, October 18th and October 25th. Would you say that’s a coincidence seeing as Halloween is just around the corner?
So, get ready to cuddle up on your couch with a blanket, hot chocolate, your fireplace and stuffed animal of your choice because there is only one question left to answer… Are You Afraid of the Dark!?
